Futures Market Insight w/John Caruso - 02/28/2019

Bull and Bear Market

Just a quick note this morning….

A better than expected GDP number this morning at 2.6% vs 2.2% and many on Wall Street (including us and our quant team) forecasting 1.6-1.9% for Q4 2018.  We know the consumer and investment slowed in Q4 – But we were wrong on net exports which increased +1.77% which was an outlier event and a big pivot for the number.  All in all, it’s a great day to execute on the process in Treasuries and even gold today.  You know how we do things here, we buy things we like at the low end of our range and sell things we don’t like at the top end of the range, that simple.

Asian equities took a dive lower overnight and as far as your daily update on U.S./China Trade, the Chinese Ambassador to the US said trade reforms could take up to 5-10yrs to accomplish.
